Research & Development
Research and Development
Research and development is the cornerstone of CECID's
work. Two competitive advantages of CECID are our market
relevant products and pioneer knowledge, to facilitate the
adoption of e-commerce technology locally and globally.
Our current R&D initiatives are Project
Phoenix, Project Pyxis,
Project Elf, Project Plumber, Project Spinner, Project Prom, Project Falco, Project
Chameleon , Project Hare, Project Portimizer and Project Acturus.
CECID has an R&D model similar to that of leading
technology firms. In the early stage of R&D, our R&D
prototypes are deployed in industry projects.
New ideas, user and system requirements, and problems discovered
from the pilot projects are fed back
to the development team. This quick development-deployment
cycle is iterative. Our products are developed according
to practical requirements. By the time our products become
mature, we also have disseminated our R&D results to
end users through different pilot projects.
Our Research Direction
Our research team has been developing advanced XML solutions
for industry since 1999. Specifically, we conduct our research
and development based on international open standards such
as: ebXML, Web Services, Universal Business Langauge (UBL),
RosettaNet, Core Component Technical Specification, etc.
Besides, we participate in prominent open standards bodies,
like Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information
Standards (OASIS), Rosettanet, and World Wide Web Consortium
(W3C). Through participation in these standards consortiums,
we are one of the early adopters of relevant e-commerce
standards and a contributor to the development of e-business
Besides open standards, we believe open source is a promising
way to accelerate e-commerce technology
Hence, we donate source code of our R&D products to
the open source project development community such as Freebxml.
Our objectives are in two-folds. Firstly, free source code
allows end users to freely adopt and experience e-commerce.
Secondly, free open source projects enable software vendors
and system integration companies to jump start their development
and services based on e-commerce open standards.
